Overview

The final electrifying installment in the #1 New York Times bestselling vampyre series



Zoey Redbird is in trouble. Having released the Seer Stone to Aphrodite, and surrendered herself to the Tulsa Police, she has isolated herself from her friends and mentors, determined to face the punishment she deserves--even if that means her body will reject the change, and begin to die. Only the love of those closest to her can save her from the Darkness in her spirit; but a terrible evil has emerged from the shadows, more powerful than ever…


Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. Crowning herself a Dark Goddess, she is evil unleashed and is enslaving the citizens of Tulsa. The vampyres of the House of Night have banded with the police, and are gathering every last resource they have, but they know that no single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her--unless that vampyre has the power to summon the elements as well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey is heir to such power…but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help.

In the final novel in the House of Night series, an epic battle of Light versus Darkness will decide who is redeemed…and who is forever lost.


The House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast is an international phenomenon, reaching #1 on U.S., German, and UK bestseller lists, and remaining a fixture on The New York Times Children's Series bestseller list for nearly 160 weeks and counting, with more than 12 million copies in print and rights sold in thirty-eight countries to date.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Twilight meets Harry Potter.” MTV.com on The House of Night series

“Both intense and thoroughly entertaining. . . . this outing will not disappoint House of Night fans.” —Kirkus Reviews on Destined

“This amazing writing pair once again weaves together a world where rising darkness threatens and brave teens risk everything.” —RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars) on Destined

“The saga of the House of Night series continues to smolder in Burned . . . fast paced and packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this book is a hard one to put down.” —Voya

VOYA, December 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 5) - Ann McDuffie
This fast-paced story continues where the previous book, Revealed (St. Martin’s, 2013), left off. Zoey, a vampire fledgling, has been jailed for two possible murders. Though she takes full responsibility for her actions, the deaths may have been caused by darker forces. Meanwhile, Neferet, Goddess of Darkness, takes possession of dozens of innocent people, turning them into mindless supplicants. Gory slayings by grotesque creatures follow. Fighting bad magic with good, Zoey and her circle cast spells to defeat the evil goddess. Old magick meets the modern world in this twelfth and final installment of the popular vampire series House of Night. Multiple viewpoints allow the reader to experience several situations on both sides of the battle. Occasional contemporary humor lightens the otherwise dark and bloody plot. The world of vampires and immortals is well imagined. Secondary characters, though not fully drawn, are still quirky enough to satisfy casual readers. It is recommended that previous books in the series be read first, as occasional references to past events may leave a reader guessing. While this is not high literature, it is fun for vampire lovers. Reviewer: Ann McDuffie; Ages 12 to 18.
Kirkus Reviews
2014-08-27
In the 12th and final installment of the House of Night series, Zoey Redbird and her band of fledgling vampyres prepare for one final battle, to restore the balance of Light and Darkness before Neferet, the self-proclaimed Goddess of Darkness, destroys everything they know and love. More powerful than ever, Neferet and her "threads of Darkness" are determined to unleash a bloody reign of terror on Tulsa, until every soul left living bows down to her in a "Dark Otherworld come to earth." As with the other House of Night novels, the momentum of the story often falters from extended lapses in action as time is devoted to the individual storylines of a large and unwieldy cast of characters. Though Zoey's sidekicks are entertaining enough, the novel would have benefited from greater focus to keep tensions high and to explore the intriguing suggestion that Zoey and Neferet might have more in common than either of them cares to think. It's a shame that this plot point is given short shrift. The novel is at its best when Zoey must tap into her innate powers, born of the spirit of the Goddess and her ancient Cherokee ancestors. Zoey's strength comes from her difference—a theme that has been consistent throughout the series and should resonate with fans one last time in the finale. (Paranormal romance. 14 & up)

    Dissapointed

    I started reading this sires and really enjoyed it, however the last book is a huge let down. Compared to the earlier writing this storyline could have been a lot better. I think that while Zoey and her friends were growing up and learning the author forgot her fan base was also growing up. This has to be the cheeseiest most cliche and just awful. She really let the storyline just drop and it's really sad it had the potential to go out with a bang. If I didn't have the need to know how stories end I never would have got there. If I could return my ebook I would. -Sincerly Dissapointed

    I have read the whole series from beginning to end, and I will admit that I have had moments of laughter, sorrow, and anger. while the authors were busy writing the series and publishing them I felt this over the top rush of anticipation. I am really happy that I had gone out of my comfort zone and chose to read this series even when I denied that I would never pick up a vampire book. This was a great series to read and wait for even when I wanted them to hurry with the next!

    Disappointed:  3 stars--REDEEMED is the final instalment in PC &

    Disappointed:  3 stars--REDEEMED is the final instalment in PC & Kristin Cast’s HOUSE OF NIGHT young adult, paranormal series focusing on sixteen year old fledgling vampyre/high priestess Zoey Redbird and her House of Night gang of misfit vampyres with affinities to the elements. 

    The final instalment focuses on the take down of the House of Night’s self-proclaimed goddess Neferet and the absolution of the Dark Winged Warrior Kalona. As Neferet terrorizes and destroys much of the city of Tulsa, Zoey and her fellow fledgling vampyres must devise a plan to stop Neferet’s reign of terror-once and for all.
    As in the previous instalments, the language and text of the storyline is adolescent in nature but the series is directed at middle grade and young adult readers so perhaps it is to be expected but I felt it was a little condescending. My biggest disappointment was with Neferet’s speech, language and actions. The immature nature of the character did not equate with the age and power of the supernatural being. She reminded me of ‘the mean girl’ when she didn’t get her way would have a temper tantrum of epic proportion. 
    The level of violence has escalated in REDEEMED such that the graphic nature of the violence and the numerous killings was disconcerting; as the numbers climbed so did my disappointment with the story. I found the numerous violent incidents over the top and redundant, and not necessary to storyline.
    I will add that the House of Night series had much potential in the early books but somewhere along the way, the authors may have erred in their storyline content and characterizations such that many readers lost interest and no longer cared. Perhaps it was the introduction of too many characters; too many villains; too many deaths; too many dead characters brought back to life; or the immature nature of the characters. Or perhaps it was the very slow build up of the series such that twelve books (and four prequel novellas) spanned less than a year in the series timeline but seven years to write and publish.  Seven years is a long time and many readers-especially young adults and tweens- will walk away from a series where very little happens between storylines. Teens become adults and will eventually gravitate to more mature storylines and adult books.  Or perhaps, YA novels are just that-young adult storylines, and the more mature reader may have difficulty with some of the storyline content.

    The final battle will see justice served but it will also see the loss of friends but a loss that is comforted by a happily ever after-for now -because although Neferet will get what she deserves, she is immortal and obviously very hard to kill. Is any character truly dead in a paranormal series?

    Great end to a very good series. The Cast ladies have tied ever

    Great end to a very good series. The Cast ladies have tied everything up with a pretty red bow. All questions answered, all problems solved.

    My only problem with this series is that I think I grew a little out of it. That would be a problem with a series geared toward teens that takes seven years to complete (I believe the first book came out in 2007). I would recommend this series to any teen (15+ years old). It covers so many teen angst issues throughout. From love to betrayal, friends to enemies. From when to have sex to when to break up. It teaches to love who you are and to believe in yourself. It deals with the average insecurities of any teenager. It is quite the spiritual read, if you take the time to feel that aspect.

    If you haven't read any in this series, PLEASE do not start here. Start with book one (Marked) and go from there. It is a wonderful series, and I hope you enjoy as much as I did (maybe even more, since you do not have to wait in between books anymore)!

    Thanx to both Cast girls. I know it was time for the series to end...I just know I am going to miss it. :~)

    Awesome series!

    I have read the entire series and fell in love with all the characters. The house of night series was well written and you can't help but get pulled into the series. Redemed was a good way of closing up the series. I am so sad that the series had to end. I feel like I have lost some truly amazing friends at the house of night. Like the saying goes; you know you've read a book and get to the end, and you feel like you've lost a good friend.

    Check out this amazing story, and if you haven't read the series from the beginning....do so, I promise you won't be dissapointed!

    THE BEST SERIES EVER !!!!!!

    The best was saved for last. I really really am happy about this final book to end this series. I cried and was happy in some parts that I won't mention.
    PC Cast has done a wonderful job writing this book and in doing so keeping ine interested in what will happen next. I really loved this book. Loved Zo and Aphrodites and her bff Stevie Ray and the whole nerd herd gang and grandma too.

    Well worth the read but let me remind you that you will be hooked. ENJOY !

    One of the best series ever!!!!!!

    I started reading this series almost 3 years ago. One of the biggest reasons I picked up the first book was because I did reserch on P.C. and Kristin Cast and learned that they are from Oklahoma. Being from Oklahoma myself I was curious to see how good the books were. I was utterly blown away. Once I started reading the books I couldn't seem to put them down. Each time I finishede one I couldn't wait for the next one to be released. I read the last 3 books just since December 12th because I was determined to finish them before the semester started back up because I knew if I was still entranced by them when it started that there would be no way I would concentrate of school....I absolutely loved this series and wish that there was more to it. I do look forward to seeing what these 2 wonderful authors come up with next, whether together or seperately. Great jobs ladies.

    Good but didn't like the language

    I really loved the book but I don't agree with all the cussing in the book. I thought this book is suppose to be for teens, so then let's set a better example . All the others didn't have the vocab that this book does. Which I am glad.

    My childhood...

    When I first started reading this series I was 15-16 I believe and now im 22, its been a wild ride. This series is in my top 3 favorite book series of all time. Harry Potter is my number one The Hunger Games is my number two & this series and Vampire Academy are a tie for third. This House of Night series has taught me so much as a person its helped me grow and taught me alot of moral life lessons. Kristen and PC Cast are an amazing mother/daughter writing duo. The two of them have different styles of writing and them combined makes for excellent reading.
    ?
    I will miss Zoey and the nerd herd so much. I'll even miss Kalona an Neferet. I have yet to read this last book because whenever a new book comes out in a series I must read all previous books leading up to it; lol im pretty OCD/anal when it comes to my reading.

    This book is a great ending for the series!

    The only thing that i didnt like is that Kalona had to die to be alowed back into Nyx's realm. I think he had already proved himself to the goddes a long time ago. But i love that he did get back to her to be able to protect and love her!!!!! Its so cute.... Ellenajust_rated

    I Also Recommend:

    I reviewed 12 on 11...

    The storyline is so long-winded that I posted the review for this book on the last book not that it matters much they're pretty much the same. That doesn't mean it's a bad series for like a long weekend or at the beach, I'm able to read one book or more a day. The whole series gave me lots of feels and I'll binge again and it will be nice to read the whole story cohesively. It's a little hard to remember all the details when the first book came out when I was 16 or 17 and now I am 24 that also makes it a little harder to relate to the characters, 8 years is much to long to run a small book series. I am excited for this author's new novel though novels being one book.

    Last book in series lacking something

    I have read all the books in the House of Night series, but this one I find lacking something. SPOILER ALERT! At the end the writers only sum up the Kalon and Neferate story lines nothing about Rephiem or Aphrodite. I was hoping they would make Rephiem a boy full time and Aphrodite a vymphire again...no such luck....and what about Heath? I agree the series needed to come to an end, but I wish all the story lines were resolved.
